Chalfont St Peter
Chalfont St Peter:
Long after it opened, services were planned in the north-west section of the M25, near Chalfont St Peter.
There would have been services on either side of the busy motorway.
In 2016 there were reports that Moto had been investigating the possibility of a service area in this area. This appeared to go away in favour of other planned sites, but they later revealed that in 2019 they would be pursuing proposals for a service area and hotel at M25 J20, Kings Langley. This will be positioned off a new roundabout on the A41, with the building raised above the height of the road to offer an uninterrupted view across the valley.
In August 2017, Highways England started building a new exit on the M25 south of J17, which is to allow construction vehicles direct access to the High Speed 2 railway construction site. They claim the sliproads (which are very well-aligned) will only have 10 years service. In October 2018, Extra announced that they wanted to use this site in future to build a large service station, very similar to Cobham.
A public meeting was planned for 23 October 2018, but it turned out the meeting was by invitation only and primarily for discussing how to raise awareness of the proposal.
Meanwhile, Moto have since upped the ante, launching a mini-site for Kings Langley services.
